're talking about germany, basically being all right with this. >> nope. >> caller: i'm a obama supporter. i think that he hasn't done everything right but i think that he is really trying. if the republicans would meet him halfway, we would probably have a lot of progress in this country. the bottom line is though, there are a lot of people in germany the skinheads and things, neo-nazi movements i'm sure that the kind of tapping he's doing there they're probably asking him to use his network to do it. and i think there's other countries probably even putin in russia who want to stick his chest out there and act like he's so anti-american but there's more cooperation going on there. >> stephanie: okay. i think i'm still drunk from the weekend. i don't think i understood one caller's point this hour. jacki's healthcare corner next on "the stephanie miller show." >> stephanie: hour number two. jacki schechner you will not believe who we have booked this hour. >> who? >> stephanie: you! >> me? did you call my people? did your people call my people? >> stephanie: i did. i did. they ok'd it. >> o
, in describing president obama. do you think that she is right in that? >> oh, absolutely. president obama is the commander in chief. it's the executive branch that's made a decision to resort to force feeding of detainees at guantanamo, and if president obama is extremely unhappy at that state of affairs, he can certainly change it. >> in terms of the controversy surrounding this issue, obviously the judge is moved by the prisoners' pleas that this is something that is both demeaning and cruel. is there legal clarity on the issue of whether or not this is the appropriate policy, whether or not this is something doctors legally can do and this is something prisons ought to do? >> no, there isn't. there's a substantial difference of opinion, and i'm not entirely unsympathetic to the physicians at guantanamo bay who i think are in a difficult situation. i mean, i think one perspective is, look, we have an ethical duty to prevent these detainees from harming themselves. that they may be detained for a long time, maybe indefinitely, maybe not. we'll see in the future. but death is irreversible
in obama-care? >> exactly right. this hearing lays the foundation for that. if you are a local business and you are dealing with this. but if you are a family and you have a child that's ill and parent that's ill. if obama-care isn't ready for business, isn't ready for my family and the answer is no, what we know now, this is a major embarrassing failure to have another ke key components f obama-care put in place. but it's an indictment on the complexity of this government takeover. gregg: the "wall street journal" is reporting the president delayed the businessman date for the following two roarns. the federal government had not written key rules guiding employers and computer systems that were supposed to run the program were not operational. they had three years to do it. in your judgment is this an administration at least in terms of this healthcare law that is incompetent? >>it is incompetent. and that whole message says that. we are too incompetent to put this massive takeover in place. we are delaying key provisions of it and oh, by the way, everything is fine, it's going to be r
way. and in this case they do have it right for one reason. they just want to keep the plans they have, however ludicrous and idiotic and gold-plated they are. that's their choice. but with obama care you can't do that. you don't have a choice. he clearly said you'll be able to keep your health plans. the unions say, wait a second, he can't keep our health plans. in this case, they have it right. >> jonas, do you think so,. >> trying to pay these health care bills, why companies are being run into a lot of trouble because -- so these plans are cadillac plans. they had to get caught. i was looking at the white paper by the union about what their griefs are, and they don't like that lower employees are going to have to basically go into crumbier health care. we need a race to the bottom from the high end of health care. this is one of the good effects. i'm ooanti-union and pro-obama. >> unions used to support obama care. now many of them don't, steve. what does that tell you about the health care law? >> it doesn't tell me anything about the health care law because there's one good thing
certain players we should be supporting. right now i think the obama administration needs to walk carefully but speak very clearly about the ultimate goals. our u.s. ambassador to eept anne patterson has a very difficult job. she just came out of pakistan a couple years ago now he is in the middle of egypt. she knows what difficult situation are ahead. again, i think we have to speak about the ultimate goals and support those that support more freedom and economic development. we can't sit on the sidelines. >> heather: speak with words or money? what about the military aide, $1.3 billion since 1979? >> right now the money is very important. we should keep the money going forward. when morsi was in power and the islamists were in control. that would have been the time to put strings on our money so we say, look, if you want to lead this country, you need to be putting forward goals that we agree with in order to get our money. now, that the military has stepped in, i think it's very important to continue that money going forward. they are the protector of making sure that we don't

use the option of defunding obama care, because that is in your authority? >> right, and we have continued, when we -- to do just that, we've continued to say under the sequester that we're operating under, the president said he wants to do something about it, but never has come forward with any kind of other suggested reforms in the entitlement areas. but when they ask for more money for obama care's implementation, we said no. we said no, we don't feel that this law is the right direction to go in. nor do we feel this administration should have the ability to take taxpayer dollars to go and sell and market this bill. i think one of the options going-forward, sean is to take a look at what this white house has done. you know what, if it's fair for big business to be exempted from this mandate, we ought to say the same for individuals. we ought to go ahead and delay the individual mandate and as you know, that individual mandate is the crux of obama care, without the individual mandate, the whole law collapses. and again, i believe that the decision that was made by this administ
they want to know about you. right now, grade president obama going into obama, going into the campaign? >> i can't -- i don't do that. i don't know. >> the jon stewart scale. you voted for him. lived up to your expectations? >> no. >> yes. >> but i don't know if my expectations were fair to the individual. i believed we were at a more transformative time, and so -- but i've come to respect a certain steadiness of his craft that i don't necessarily agree with. i think he had an opportunity more in the reagan mold to be a bully pulpit president than what he appears to be, which is more of a tip o'neill president. like a legislative worker. more of someone who understands a bureaucratic method as opposed to something that is more, you know, teddy roosevelt, ronald reagan type. >> appreciate you coming in. >> i'm really nice guy. >> are you a standup guy. >> i will always defend my positions. i don't put this out there lightly. >> no. the thing i like about you, you do take cheap shots all the time, but you defend the cheap shots and do so very well. >> that's not the only thing you like a
standards have improved. >> julie, what do you think? >> i think he's right. you guys are complaining that obama wants to raise fuel standards is, but that's pretty good news for gas standards. it will make that tank of gas go a lot longer and i think that's pretty good. i'm not oppose to the keystone pipeline. but we do know that it's not really -- i mean, from fact checkers and others who have looked at it, it's not really going to affect the price of gas. we can sit here and pretend it's going to be a massive panacea. it might marginally effect it a couple of cents. >> here is the issue. as much as going after coal -- as much as raising our utility bills is the issue, that part of the energy issue -- >> what part of the energy issue? >> going after coal, going after -- not driving those standards and grandfathering it in for power plants and the like, that all of a sudden are looking at having to make these expensive adjustments right now. i find it odd that these plants that really depend on coal, jul julie, are the ones that are going to get socked in the seats and these are the
be doing right now is urging calmness, urging the military to move through this civilian process as quickly as possible. >> reporter: president obama's critics say by not condemning the egyptian military, he's making the same mistake me in not criticizing morsi in a timely manner which alienated some egyptians. it's the same so-called mistake critics say the administration made when vice president biden defended mubarak days before he was deposed. >> would ymubarak has been an a ours in a number of things. >> reporter: then and now, the issue with divisive. the white house shrugs off the idea as once again behind the curve. >> the curve we're interested in is the curve that leads towards a stable democratic egypt where the rights of all egyptians are respected and upheld. >> officials here won't say how longful take them to review the rules on aid to egypt, but they suggest the longer the egyptian military can be seen as acting with restraint while still keeping the fight between morsi critics and supporters from getting out of control, the more time that goes by to them. >> wendell, thank
to sign a petition to repeal the bill of rights. watch this. >> obama wants to repeal the bill of rights so we want to just show support for that and replace it with new ndaa type patriot act legislation. bill of rights, just repeal the bill of rights. thank you so much. we're helping obama repeal the bill of rights, all of them. really the only one that's left is really the third amendment, but that's not really applicable unless we're in a time of war. so a signature to support repealing the bill of rights.

[ laughter ] first of all, in fairness, you ask people, on a california beach anything that's bravo related, you're going to have trouble. california beach, it's the epitome of our air headed country. >> gretchen: it doesn't make you sad, to know that people would give up their rights? >> it is kind of a trick -- i mean, the way he asked. it's funny, of course. it's not like -- kind of disturbing. >> brian: this is going to get you angry. people actually learn stuff while laughing at your sh

to stand for that. in fact, if you look at this obama care debacle that they have right now, this administration is actually deciding when and where to actually enforce the law. and that's what some of us in the house are concerned about. if you give to this administration the authority to decide when they're going to enforce the law, how they're going to enforce the law, and you tell them that it's okay if they decide if there's going to be 20,000 troops or if there's -- i mean 20,000 border patrol agents or they get to determine when the border is secure, i can tell you that janet napolitano has already said that the border is secure. so what's going to happen is we're going to give legalization to 11 million and janet napolitano will come to congress and tell us that the border is already secure and nothing else needs to happen. >> eugene robinson, take this on. you've got john mccain, who just a few years ago is doing campaign ads saying secure this darn border first, who's saying that congressman labrador and anyone who cites insufficient security at the boarder is look
. america is blamed enough as it is. there is no need to add another grievance to the list. the obama administration would be wise to distance itself from the army's actions and use its leverage particularly to promise financial assistance and respect the rights of islamists. how important is it to keep the muslim brotherhood in the fold here unless they separate and even take up arms struggle? >> it would be much preferable had president morsi called early elections and subjected himself to elections and shown whether he had the support of the nation. that didn't happen. of course an egypt for all includes in my mind participation from the muslim brotherhood. but, you know, president morsi himself acted rather dictatorially back in november when he said these decrees were not subject to judicial review, when he said the constitutional assembly was not subject to judicial review. so at the end of the day, while i would have liked to have seen early elections and then see him test his support among the people and the people would have had a choice and therefore less likely to have them
